Monday Stuff
Monday, March 1st, 2010

Good morning! I’m having a bit of trouble charging the brain today. It’s so dark in Chicago. Ugh.

I had a book signing in Moline, IL yesterday, which was rather…quiet. Apparently, there aren’t many readers of erotic romance/romance or readers of my books in this area. I know other authors can relate, but when this happens, and you are just sitting there like an idiot with your books and pen ready to go, it morphs from humiliating to bored to…can I please go now? LOL. Luckily, my husband was there to cheer me up and buy me fruit smoothies, and I did meet some really nice ladies. Who knows, maybe I’ll convert a few readers in Moline over to the dark side yet. 🙂

Anyway, just a heads up that I did an interview over at Cecile’s blog today, and there is a giveaway to one commenter to any book in my backlist, including Release.

Um, let’s see what else. OH! Juniper Bell’s winner will be announced later this evening. Then, look for a feature from my good friend, Fiona Jayde who has a novella called Pas de Deux coming out at Samhain tomorrow. Have you seen Fiona’s video for this? It’s amazing, as is Fiona’s writing. I’ll have both here, so check it out later this evening.

Hope your Monday is as good as a Monday can be!

    Hey Ms. Beth! I want to thank you for coming over to my place to play today!! It is greatly appreciated! {{Hugs to you}} I Hope you are having as much I am!

    And yes… I can not wait for Fiona’s book to come out!!!! ***wanna know a secret…*** She will be at my place too… =)

    And before I go… I just want to you to know that if I would have lived any where near Moline… I would have went! Maybe people were just a little concerned as to what their neighbors thought if they bought “those” kinds of book.
    You know I wonder about that when I shop for myself… I am one to proudly hold “those” kind of books in my hand. I am never shy about what I pick up and read or buy. But I wonder if people are like that?? Sorry for the babble.. stopping now.

    Hope you have a great day!

    Hey Beth,
    I’m sorry to hear about the lackluster signing…If I was anywhere near Moline I would’ve soo been there! I would’ve loved to meet you and get all your books signed. Just remember if you ever get a hankering to come to Ottawa, Ont. Canada…I’ll be the first person waiting to meet you and get my books signed.

    Hi Cecile–well, at other book signings, it’s never been a problem. It’s really whether or not you have a following at that store. I actually did this one because the Waldenbooks where I used to go, and had a following, closed down. The book store manager–who is a sweetie–felt bad, I think, as we’d planned a signing. She hooked me up with this one, which was very nice of her. The people were very nice, I just didn’t have a following there, which let’s face it…it pretty important. lol.

    Thanks, Cecile!

    Don’t feel so bad about yesterdays signing because more people read erotic romance than they let on. Great things are always being said about your books. 😀

    ARGH! I’m so sorry about the signing Beth. 🙁 Please know that if I were about fifteen states closer, I’d have made a POINT to be there.
